The afternoon of Day One saw us visiting the usual suspects of Days of Wonder, AbacusSpiele, Amigo Spiele, and Pearl Games. We also covered some of the high-buzz games of this Essen namely YUNNAN, MADEIRA, KEYFLOWER, RUSSIAN RAILROADS and BRUXELLES 1893. And there’s one physical football simulation game called KICKET!
ESSEN SPIEL 2013. Boardgamecafe.net’s back to Essen for this 4-day SPIEL and this report covered the morning session of Day One where we checked out games like Patchistory, Caverna, Origin, Expedition NorthWest Passage, Concept, Coal Baron before we paused for our lunch break.
Here’s the 2nd part of our Game Two report for the BGC Retreat 2013. You’ve read about Glass Road, Legacy, Bruges and Artifact in part one. Now find out how the gamers did for Byzantio, Lords of Waterdeep and Cafe Melange; and who went into Game Three in the lead.
The 2nd round featured no less than six (of the seven) games being a 2013 release – Glass Road, Legacy, Bruges, Artifact, Byzantio and Cafe Melange – and only Lords of Waterdeep was a 2012 game. So many new games…. so little time.
A replay of GAME ZERO & GAME ONE from our BGC Retreat event last year saw us revisit ORIGIN, MARS NEED MECHANICS, PELOPONNES, AFRICANA, BUCCANEER BONES, ZOOLORETTO DICE.. and MISSION: RED PLANET (?) at OTK Cheras last night.
It’s now time to get into the Retreat proper with the first scoring round in Game One where seven new/recent games were featured; ORIGIN, PACKET ROW, MARS NEED MECHANICS, PERGAMON, PELOPONNES, AMONG THE STARS and AFRICANA.
